The story of T.E. Lawrence, the English officer who successfully united and led the diverse, often warring, Arab tribes during World War I in order to fight the Turks.
In 1999, it was ranked #3 on the British Film Institute's 100 Greatest British Films of the 20th Century.
He was the most extraordinary man I ever knew.
Vicar at St. Paul's: Did you know him well?
Colonel Brighton: I knew him.
Vicar at St. Paul's: Well nil nisi bonum. But did he really deserve a place here?
Following Lawrence's memorial service, the view of the front of St Paul's Cathedral shows that the left-hand clock face (the North) is missing. This was actually destroyed during the Second World War, which did not begin until 4 years after T.E. Lawrence died.
The opening credits read: Introducing Peter O'Toole as T.E. Lawrence. However, O'Toole had already played very noticeable roles in two feature-length films, the Disney 1960 version of Kidnapped (1960), and The Day They Robbed the Bank of England (1960).
